"House prices, one of the UK's principal consumer confidence supports, have come under Brexit pressure. The Royal Institute of Surveyors confirmed yesterday that its members were reporting falling activity levels in all regions, with July prices growing at their slowest pace in three years, a sharp drop in sales and a record low number of properties being advertised. A survey of over 300 agents also suggests they expect key London prices to fall over the next year. This news, along with the sharp reversal in oil prices spurred by a reported spike in US crude inventories on the back of expanded production from Saudi Arabia, means equities in London will have a soft opening this morning, with the FTSE-100 seen down around 25 points in early trading. The US markets, not surprising, saw energy stocks lead the falls overnight; while continuing to trade in a narrow range, all principal indices closed modestly negative in the absence of other significant corporate or macroeconomic news. In Asia, the Nikkei was closed for Mountain Day public holiday, leaving the Chinese markets in Hong Kong and Shanghai to put in fractional gains, while the commodity-exposed ASX fell back quite sharply. UK investors will be keen to see this morning's Council of Mortgage Lenders arrears and repossessions report, while corporates expected to report half-yearly figures include Caledonia Mining Corp. (CMCL.L), Glencore (GLEN.L), Hastings Group (HSTG.L), Old Mutual (OML.L) and TUI (TUI.L)." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - Momentum screen refresh + 10 focus stocks
12 Jan 17
We have refreshed our momentum style screen for the first time since inception on 26 July 2016. As before, the screen selects the 25 stocks exhibiting the most extreme momentum characteristics, according to our measurement method. From these we have selected 10 to focus on. Since inception the screen has underperformed both the main small-cap and micro-cap indices against a background of generally rising momentum. We have noted a subset of the basket, where decelerating momentum at the time of measurement appears correlated with significant share price falls since selection. We shall monitor this factor with the new screen, albeit there are only two such stocks showing this pattern, namely Lamprell (not rated) and Gear4music (not rated).
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 12-01-2017
12 Jan 17
As anticipated, the second half has again been stronger than H1 and results will be broadly in line with expectations. In line with this, the order book has continued to grow and is at record levels. This confirms that significant progress has been made in the Group’s shift towards its Technology Products division which, as targeted, contributed c.60% of group revenue in FY16. The small acquisition of Cable Power also gives a complementary boost to the product range. It is also worth noting the significant reduction in net debt, £1.0m ahead of our forecast. We remain supportive of the Group’s strategy and continue to see a bright future as this transition towards a design led technology solutions business continues. We look forward to more detail in March at the final results.
